    Referrer spam shit. Earlier (10 years ago) many sites had, for god-knows-what reason list of last 10 referrers posted in sidebar on site, and then this spam had some sense because google would index and keep pages with referrer links some time, giving rankings to spammer. But now is almost useless and those fucks are just clogging the internet world with their bot traffic. You can block them in .htaccess,

    Code:
    RewriteEngine on 
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} ^http://([^.]+\.)*semalt\.com [NC]
    RewriteRule (.*) http://www.semalt.com [R=301,L]

    I use them for rank tracking and I am very satisfied. It is the best free rank traking service I have found so far.I like the fact that gives you rankings for top 100 and not top 50 like other free services,updating every day, with big amout of keywords and websites.About referrer spam, I didn't have any problem with that with my websites, or maybe I didn't notice .

    Good to see you blocked it, but still keep a good eye on it just in case.
